The story was told in a very logical way, and it kept my interest throughout. Anna always has a wonderful personal interest point of view. I look forward to her next book also
I love Civil War stories, and this one does not disappoint - there is brutal detail in the story that only reminds us that a mere century and a half ago (or so) we were a savage people who did nnot understand the importance of basic hygiene, much less the equality of women (and race).
The narrator does make some mistakes that I feel were silly, but the story is not predictable and the heroine is not typical - these factors set this period piece apart from others set in this era.
In all, a story that is challenging, yet intriguing, fulfilling, yet merciless in the details of war. This book is not for the feint of heart, but is satisfying if you stay with it.
